I just returned home from a very long day with my momma. We shopped; our ultimate goal was to find shoes for my sister’s wedding. After traveling to several shoe stores in the Columbia vicinity, I settled on a nice pair that are both comfortable and attractive (that is nearly unheard of) from DSW. The design of the shoe is very simple–strappy silver sandal type–and I am debating whether I should jazz them up with a little ribbon flower and/or beading.
Of course, we stopped by a few other places en route to various shoe stores… like JoAnn… … and you cannot just leave the store with an empty tote…
I have a thing for totes. I use them all of the time, everyday. So this new green plastic one was a welcome addition… especially when it was 50% off, coming out to $2. I am pretty sure that it was the polka dots that got me.
The remaining stock (8 balls) of the black Cotton Ease fit perfectly, as well as 2 skeins of JoAnn Sensations Angel Hair. Yeah, you saw my yarn stash… you know I needed more yarn like I need a hole in the head. Does it help knowing the Cotton Ease is being discontinued?
… and you cannot just leave the store with an empty tote…
My mom, my little sis, Sarah, and I had an appointment with the seamstress who is making the dresses for the wedding. They are nearly finished, due to pick up next Wednesday. The bridesmaid dresses that Sarah and I wear are a great iris/periwinkle color in taffeta. My mom’s dress is a great pink/purple dress in silk. The seamstress is really doing a wonderful job.
All of the dresses still need a bit of work, redoing seams, cinching skirts, inserting liners, etc. and I cannot wait to see the final product. I love the fabric.

This is where I will be spending the latter half of October… Oahu! Kris bought our tickets today. The best part about it? They were only $20! We have been saving up our miles and what a way to cash them in (So, this is a justification for all of the yarn store buys: each purchase with the credit card earns miles to travel to exotics locales!)
